Broken, shattered, disintegrated.

Rape Poems by Teens
Poetry by Teen Survivors of Rape
Rape is one of the most degrading, devastating emotional events that can happen to a person. Many people try to deny that they were raped by keeping it a secret, but repressing an attack simply delays the healing process and leaves the attacker free to attack again. Instead, victims should seek out legal and medical help, and a trusted friend to confide in. Often, recovery only begins when a victim talks to others about what happened to them. If you were raped, remember that what happened to you is not your fault. You deserve to get help and emotional support.
